Information Sharing Is Key to Fighting Terrorism

Over the last nine years, we have witnessed terrorist attacks throughout the world. In places like Madrid, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Indonesia, Northern Ireland, Russia, the Philippines, Israel, and India, innocent civilians have been slaughtered in mass casualty attacks. These attacks were perpetrated by a variety of terrorist organizations, operating in multiple countries, using a broad array of tactics, and motivated by vastly different causes. These attacks have clearly demonstrated that terrorism is a problem that is not limited to one culture, one country, or even one region of the world.
